You might remember Kirt and Jen’s family as the family of four living full-time in their Sprinter van! As their boys grew up, they decided they needed more room — but they didn’t go the traditional route of re-purchasing a home. Instead, they built out this DIY Overlander that doubled their space and made it easier for them to stay boondocking for a couple of weeks at a time.

Their Overlander is a combination of a dualie truck and a brand new specialized box that they attached to it and converted into a home. The space inside has a large kitchen, bunks for the boys, and a standard queen-sized bed for mom and dad. They also have a shower and toilet in their mini bathroom and an incredible fold-out outdoor space with an awning.

Nate and Maud might be one of the most adorable couples we’ve seen before! After meeting in Thailand just before the world shut down and then getting married so they could stay together, the couple chose to build out a van and hit the road with their full-time remote jobs. And they have no intentions of ever quitting #vanlife!

Their rig is almost entirely white on the inside, including a custom whitewashed tongue-in-groove ceiling. They have “long-ways” bed setup so they can stretch out (they’re both over 5’10”), and even a hide-away shower they pull out for 5 to 10 minutes a day. What’s your favorite part?

Meet Nick Soave, a musician who built a tiny house on wheels between 2017 and 2019, and has been happily living in it since 2020. It sits on an Alpaca farm in Michigan, and the living room is almost entirely dedicated to his awesome drum set.

Nick is starting a YouTube Channel talking all about his tiny life and how he built this home for just $23,000 using some awesome techniques and plenty of reclaimed materials. Below is his first video with an in-depth tour of his build. What do you love the most?

Cruz and Mariah first went tiny back when Cruz was commuting long distances for his construction work. Living in an RV allowed him to have more time at “home” with Mariah since he could park close to the construction sites. But it still didn’t allow them to travel much.

That’s when they decided to sell the RV, buy a bus, and convert it into an awesome tiny home. Mariah figured out how to take her side hustle of painting portraits and make it into her full-time job! Now that they have remote work, the couple can go anywhere and see everything.

Channing is such an inspiration! Not only is she an elite athlete as Team USA Paralympian Kayaker, she doesn’t let anything stand in her way. She was tired of plane trips and missing out on the places she traveled with her team, so she decided to build out her own wheelchair-friendly truck camper, so she could travel on her own time, save money, and see what she wanted to see!

Her truck has hand controls, she rigged up a bathroom system that works for her, and she carries her motorized off-roading trike on a pull-away bar on the back of the rig. Inside she has a couch pad, a “loft” bedroom, and all she needs to make food. What an awesome woman!

Paula, a single mom, owns a 5-bedroom home. Her son was just about to leave the house, and she realized the transition into empty-nesting was going to be really hard on her. She ended up down the #vanlife rabbit hole and found herself intrigued. Thankfully, her younger brother helped push her to pursue her dream instead of talking herself out of it.

Now Paula owns a beautiful ambulance camper that she converted with the help of friends and family. It has her bed, a comfy couch, a compact kitchenette with flip-up desk, and even a shower/toilet. As her little legacy, she posts on YouTube about her travels and enjoys seeing the country. She’s just about ready to sell her “real house” since she’s realized none of that stuff is bringing her joy anymore!

Molly and her partner live in a tiny home, which they’ve built, that sits on family property in the Cairngorms National Park in the Scottish Highlands. Having visited there before, I can say this is truly a magical place to live! And the home they’ve created makes it even more lovely.

While Molly admits the home isn’t entirely complete, it’s truly lovely with sage green cabinets and open shelving in their kitchen, high ceilings over the couch, and two stand-up lofts — one that’s a bedroom and the other that’s an office/guest room. Their bathroom is still under renovations. Tell me what you think in the comments!

You might remember Kenny’s awesome Dodge Dualie Home on Wheels we showed you back in 2020 when he won Simple Solar Homesteading’s “Off-Grid Houses on the Move” Contest. Well here’s a video tour nearly two years later showing Kenny living his best life on the road!

His entirely off-grid rig has an amazing closet that turns into his shower/bathroom, an awning and porch that fold up for travel, and tons of beautiful heirlooms from his grandmother and other family members that he incorporated into the design. What do you love the most? Oh, and he did it all for less than $11k!!

Almost a decade ago, Danielle lived in Austin and was tired of the creeping rent prices. In her heart, she wanted to get all her friends to build tiny homes with her, so they could live in a little commune. While that didn’t all happen, about 6 years ago, *she* finished building her own DIY tiny house and has it parked on her uncle’s property in Oregon.

Danielle splurged where it mattered to her — on her brand-new trailer and cedar siding — and otherwise scoured Craigslist and the Re-Store for reclaimed materials to create her budget build. In the end, she spent about $25k on her home. It has so much character inside, with awesome pieces like her grandmother’s stained-glass windows and the fallen-wood railings. What do you think of what she did?
